Bird Deterrents Keep Pest Birds Off Street Lights and Signage

Posted on May 20, 2014 by Terri Anne Meyer in Bird Deterrents

It's a common problem faced by municipalities bird droppings on streetlights and directional signs along highways and freeways. Streetlights are easily damaged by excessive accumulations of bird droppings and debris. The same holds true for signage. Bird droppings often block letters causing signs to be misread. The acid in bird droppings can eat into the paint and render the sign practically useless. Cleanup and repair crews must be sent out to remove bird droppings and bird nesting debris. Crews working high on ladders can often be startled by birds nesting in signs and lighting systems, posing a significant danger of falling. And since dried bird droppings can carry diseases, protective gear (PPE) must be provided to each individual exposed to such contaminants. This can create a problem for today's municipalities already burdened by heavily strained budgets. It is time to look into bird deterrents to keep bird off lighting fixtures.The Professional Pest Bird Deterrent

The solution to this problem calls for professional level bird control. Proven pest bird deterrents should be used, deterrents that scare birds from signs and lighting systems. Such bird controls must be easy to install and virtually maintenance free. One such pest bird deterrent that meets these requirements and has demonstrated its effectiveness in getting rid of pest birds is the Bird Spider 360 from Bird-B-Gone.

Breeze Powered to Scare Birds

The multi-tentacle Bird Spider 360 has been specially designed to scare birds and prevent them from landing on signs and lighting fixtures. Its breeze-powered spindly arms continually bounce and sway, creating a visual distraction zone for starlings, pigeons, seagulls and other large birds. Ruggedly designed for outdoor use, the Bird Spider 360 features 316 marine grade stainless steel arms that pin into a UV- protected polycarbonate base. A separate PVC base and #10 316 grade screws are included. Long lasting UV-protected polycarbonate tips ensure the arms bounce and sway in the wind. These tips will prevent the arms from scuffing surfaces.

Four Arm Lengths, Multiple Mounting Options

The Bird Spider 360 is available in four arm lengths to provide 2', 4', 6' and 8' diameter coverage zones to scare birds away. The PVC base allows the device to be conveniently mounted wherever birds flock most often. The base can be glued or screwed down. An optional rotating base lets the Spider spin around in the wind, and a sand bag base keeps the Spider stable on uneven surfaces. Each Spider 360 comes pre-assembled and installs easily with common tools. Construction grade adhesives can be used in lieu of a sandbag base. Once set up, the Spider 360 is virtually invisible and maintenance free.

While the use of poisons and other lethal means are either ineffective or illegal, the Bird Spider 360 is an effective and humane bird deterrent solution to the pest bird problem.
